5. gpu-z has a sensor table, run gpu-z in the background, if it's throttling you'll see a green bar that says "pwr" in the perfcap section(its not an issue with this BIOS). thermal, voltage, power restrictions have been removed as well.
6.I'd try to stay between 65C-70C, but I have OCD about temps, so those stardards may be too high. in the end it's whatever you are comfortable running your card temp wise.

3 - I don't know if your GPU is compatible with F4 or F10. You'd need to find that out when you open your existing BIOS.
4 - Yes adaptive works just fine. This 4k benchmark is using adaptive.

6 - YES smile.gif

Thanks guys! biggrin.gif

I saved my bios with gpu-z.. really easy as you said. smile.gif I opened it with maxwell bios tweaker. The bios name is GV-N98GT1 GAMING-6GD_D/F3
So it's D_D, but I don't understand how can I know if it's compatible with F4 or F10... and beside that I see only the F4 for my card in the first post of this thread.

Nice idea to keep adaptive on global, and maximum performance on specific applications wink.gif I'll do that.

Thanks! biggrin.gif

Here is my stock / default fan setting (on the left) in bios and the RC1 (right) one which i am on currently:

I think no, how can watch dogs load my fans over the max speed ? Temps in watch dogs are the same. I don't know what to do i think i keep the gpu in this way, when i exit watch dogs i have to run furmark for two second close it and fans returns ok.

I don't know man... wow that's odd.. If it was me I would be returning it but since you are making some "progress" you'll need to do some more troubleshooting on your end first to make sure you don't go through all that hassle and waiting for nothing.

Can you just unplug connections that you are not using and plug them in when you need them?

Currently using the mod bios with the fan profile above. I noticed on the stock bios for me, when the GPU reached 75C the fans would spin up to 70% so I applied a fan profile for the modded bios to mimic the stock bios auto fan profile and it seems to be doing great and it's never going over 76C. biggrin.gif

Next step.. replace Corsair H60 CPU Cooler with something quieter and better performing.


Yah definitely the perfect fit will be somewhat unique to all of us. You can spend some time tweaking just for your GPU based on your temps, airflow and ambient temps. There's no wrong answer unless your GPU gets too hot tongue.gif. The "AUTO" fan settings are NOT stock either so you can try them out.

Well done!

Yup DD

F3 and F4 are the same revision so F4 is compatible with your GPU. You've got an older BIOS that's all. Flashing the BIOS will not only give you the mod but will upgrade you to the latest BIOS for your card also smile.gif

You would want to grab the RC2 DD F4 version smile.gif

Since I didn't update the OP yet you'll have to find it a few pages back lol

Check this out...at your own risk of course...
http://www.resplendence.com/downloads
Latency monitor

HPET

...some say enabling it works better for Quad cores... some say it is less stuttering when both are enabled... some say it is less stuttering when both are disabled...

Windows will by default use multiple types of timers. It is possible to force windows to use just ONE type, the best type, HPET. This is said to be better because the O/S doesn't bounce between multiple types and uses JUST HPET instead..

All I can say is this... (and I have a quad core, a Xeon X5470)...These tests were running FFXIV benchmark @ 4k max settings, (2) 980Ti in SLI fresh reboot for each test.

HPET ENABLED in BIOS but DISABLED in O/S (Windows 7 x64)


HPET DISABLED in BOTH BIOS and O/S (Windows 7 x64)


HPET ENABLED in BOTH the BIOS and O/S (Windows 7 x64)

^ Clearly the better choice, at least for me. I would recommend you try the different combinations yourself.




This works for Windows 7 x64 (may work for others not sure)

FORCE THE O/S TO USE HPET
bcdedit /set useplatformclock true
(then reboot)

UNDO AND RETURN BACK TO MIXED TIMERS BEING USED
bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock
(then reboot)

If Laithan allows me to mod RC1 BIOS fan settings for you I would be glad to do it smile.gif

LOOOL Laithan!!

I just flashed (and everything went good), I changed for maximum performance in global nVidia control panel, and launched Heaven 4.0... I can't believe it, but results are awful! blinksmiley.gif
Today with my custom bios I had these values after benchmark:
fps: 58.3
points: 1469
min fps: 30.9
max fps 119.2
max temps: 70°-71°
2560x1440 - AA 8x - tessellation extreme- quality ultra

Now my results are:
fps: 55.5
points: 1397
min fps: 26.5
max fps: 112.3
max temps: 63°
same configuration

How would you explain that mate? eh-smiley.gif

Thanks for your patience and support. smile.gif

I am suspicious... let's try and figure it out.. (the MOD BIOS doesn't lower performance lol)

proof.gif

My guess, I say there is something different between those tests biggrin.gif How CERTAIN are you that you were comparing apples/apples between the 2 BIOS'? Can you describe how you configured the GPU for each BIOS to do a comparison since all of the overclocking parameters change?

3 fps avg difference isn't really awful..I'd say more of something within margin of error comparing the best run with the worst or something like that. I see inconsistent benchmark results all the time (so does everyone else) with Kepler and Maxwell cards. Having said that I also think that Heaven is one of the few benchmarks that actually do provide a fairly consistent score...


Did you max both power% and voltage sliders? That's key for this MOD to work when overclocking and pushing performance.


ANOTHER Key observation.. your temps are 7C-8C LOWER with the MOD BIOS??!? Temps should slightly increase not be reduced. Did you have the fan running full blast for one test and not the other?

I would suggest that you repeat your tests and make sure both the CORE/BOOST and MEMORY clocks were identical. Use GPU-z to log the tests. I just don't see how a MOD BIOS would reduce your temps... unless the fan was full blast or you weren't actually running @ the same speeds GPU and/or memory as you thought you were.

Check it out and let me know boss!

Here I am! smile.gif
Sorry I didn't raise the power limit nor the maximum voltage in Afterburner.. tongue.gif

Now results are these:

fps: 59.6
points: 1501
min fps: 27.3
max fps: 122.8
max temps: 67° (still lower than before!!)
2560x1440 - AA 8x - tessellation extreme- quality ultra

from the MSI AB monitors:

max power: 102%
max temps: 67°
GPU usage: 99%
max core: 1455 (super!)
max fan speed: 75% (maybe I could set it manunally to a lower %, until I reach max 70°, so I lower the overall noise)

I am sure the test conditions before and after the flash were the same, since I didn't touch anything before and after in the GPU settings. :\

I really appreciate your feedback, you are doing a great work, all of you guys smile.gif
